 Cashflow Strategies using Profit First 

Profit First Success Story


“We have been using Profit First in our business for nearly 2 years and by splitting out all of the money to different accounts, we know exactly what the money is for.  I love that every time the BAS is due, I always have enough money in the tax account.  If I don’t have enough money in the expenses account to pay bills, I jump on the phone and make a few calls to clients to bring in the money quicker, and then I have enough to pay the bills, and it tops up the other accounts too.

I love that I can see our profit account grow, and we can use that money to reduce debt or swap out vehicles that need replacing. We thought it would be a struggle to run our small business, but using this system it isn’t a struggle at all.  We have time off regularly, and with our team beside us, we know that our business runs smoothly when we are out camping or on the boat.

Profit First is such a great way to manage your money that I introduced it to my sister-in-law’s business and they are using it, too.”

The Profit First Formula

Be honest, how many times do you look at your Profit and Loss Statement to see what your profit is?
And that's all you look at - the "bottom line".  

Income is at the top, then the Expenses, and what's last is the Profit.

Sales - Expenses = Profit

Looking at your profit as something that's left over or something you will achieve "one day" is doing you and your business a dis-service.  


The Profit First formula is:

Sales - Profit = Expenses

When we focus on our Profits, they actually happen.  And when we only use what's left to run our business, we can get just as much done with less.


By limiting the amount of money we can spend on expenses, we find ways to become more innovative, to work towards getting the biggest bang for our buck!
